Introduction

Lesson 1

The key to Walant surgery is getting the basics right. Walant is more than just using local anaesthetic (LA) and adding adrenaline. Walant is a way for us to perform surgery differently, more efficiently and most of all, potentially better for the patient. Will Walant suddenly make all your patients get a better result? Probably not (at least not straight away) but what it can do is open up the possibilities for your practice:  

  • Wider choice of anaesthetic other than just regional or general anaesthetic (RA & GA)
  • Add in field sterility and you can operate almost anywhere that is a clean environment
  • Less people involved (no anaesthetic team) therefore better flow and more control of the system

Use this video tutorial to learn how to maximise your chances of getting a good result, making the most of the time to educate them, and a few tips we use to make the experience of being stabbed with a needle a little less terrifying for them!
